Coding and Decoding the News Media
For this project I wanted to tackle how news media can be easily readable and accessible on web pages. In my design, I worked with a piece of news that contains text, image, video, and hyperlink elements. My main goal was to present the information clearly and objectively on a web interface.
The first step of my design started with analyzing and reconstructing the hierarchy of the information. I created different level of emphasis on the title, tagline, author, and body. Blue was selected as the theme color due to its rational appeal.
A two column system was chosen to systematically display the information and to narrow width of the body text for better readability. In the body text, details like the off-black text, large letting, and wide paragraph spacing all help readers to follow along the massive chunk of information.
The webpage was coded through HTML and CSS.
